Find out what went wrong

Lucky people make mistakes just like everyone else, but the difference between them and other people is that they are able to learn from their mistakes so that they increase their chances of success next time.

People born on September 20 are often blessed with great charm, their outgoing personality tending to attract those in need of guidance. They are natural leaders and are at their happiest when guiding or controlling individuals or a group in a well-thought-out project.

The organizational skills of these people are often in great demand but because they can have problems saying “no” they may sometimes take on more than they can cope with. They are independent and resourceful, and like to pride themselves on being able to seek the best way to manage a situation. More often than not they are the most capable person on hand, but there will be times when even their best efforts don’t succeed. How they cope with these setbacks or “failures” is the key to their psychological growth. If they can learn from their mistakes and move forward with increased awareness, their potential for success both personally and professionally is outstanding; but if they go on repeating the same mistakes or refuse to acknowledge where their words or actions may have been at fault, they will block their progress.

Until the age of thirty-one they will often feel a need to be popular and admired. They will stand a better chance of winning friends and allies if they don’t overpower others with their opinions. After the age of thirty-two there is a turning point when their sense of personal power will increase and opportunities will be presented to them to become more self-reliant. During these years nothing will be more important for them than their ability to learn the art of caution and patience; this is because they have a tendency to leap before they look.

Although they should never lose their energetic and passionate spirit, their chances of happiness and fulfillment will increase once they have learned that the best way they can make their innovative and significant contribution to the world is to advise, organize and inspire not just others but themselves.

On the dark side

Condescending, controlling, superficial

At your best

Organized, practical, intelligent

Love Nurturing rather than controlling

People born on September 20 need to make sure that they recognize when their affectionate and nurturing nature is starting to become too controlling or dictatorial. Friendly, sociable and always with something interesting to say, they rarely lack admirers but tend to be drawn to unconventional but intelligent individuals. Although passionate, they do not fall in love easily; if a relationship is going nowhere they will be quick to recognize it and leave.

Health Keep your brain sharp

People born on this day are often extremely intelligent and it is important for them to keep their brain active. If they don’t they are likely to become despondent and forgetful. As well as mental activity, it is equally important for them to stay physically active as their love of delegation may mean that they spend a lot of time sitting rather than doing. Regular exercise is therefore essential; running, swimming and all kinds of aerobic activity are highly recommended. As far as diet is concerned, they need to avoid fad diets as they could be prone to weight problems, hormone imbalances and eating disorders which can all be triggered or made worse by erratic eating habits. Lavender essential oil will be an uplifting aroma for them when they are dealing with stress; wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color blue will encourage them to be more calm and logical in their response to situations and others.

Career Born people planners

These people have the potential to achieve success in a variety of careers but will often be drawn to the arts, music, writing, or the media. Other work choices that might appeal include people planning, sales, public relations, promotions, advertising, statistics, research, education, social reform, or psychology.

Destiny To lead others to new and progressive areas of interest

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to take a step back and weigh up the pros and cons before they make a decision. Once they have learned to take calculated risks, their destiny is to lead others to new situations and areas of interest.
